a brilliant production - over 2 hours of great musical entertainment in the superb waterfront hall - andrea begley and the cast of over 200 singers, dancers and school choirs were excellent and the choice of christmas music left me breathless - don't miss it next year!!!!

Fabulous performance of Messiah. Belfast Philharmonic in fine form with Ulster Orchestra(Chamber). The soprano and tenor soloists were sublime. Interval coffee was awful. It would be better not to offer this. Surely a venue such as this could offer proper coffee? Otherwise experience was great.

We went to see the snowman at the waterfront with the ulster orchestra. The concert itself was really enjoyable. The service in the hall itself was awful and made the whole experience a bad one. You can't use your card at any of the bars and there are no cash machines in the venue or any within a ten minute... More

The staff at this venue need to seriously work on their manners. Throughly offended and a great evening out with the kids ruined by bad attitude.

Recently attended a Chas 'N' Dave concert at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast with a group of friends. The staff had obviously decided to ensure this was not a good old Chas 'n' Dave style 'knees up' or indeed fun night in any way as we were constantly told off for singing along, dancing and generally trying to enjoy the craic...

What can I say. We flew from England to see Chas & Dave with some very dear friends only to be bitterly disappointed with the staff and the ridiculous policy this venue has. Not only can you NOT have a drink in the main hall from the PLASTIC cups provided, you can't talk, sing or dance as apparently it is... More

Nice venue but not the place to go to watch live music as you're not allowed to dance or generally appear to be enjoying yourselves. Staff left a lot to be desired. It was embarrassing as the band kept telling the audience to get up and dance, and when we did, the staff were upon us telling us to sit... More

Went to see Clannad here last night, great gig and a superb intimate venue which really suited the music. Well looked after and very comfortable with load sf decent parking right beside it. Will actively look to go here more often, great night in a cracking hall.

Went to see Christy Moore, fist time we've seen him in Ireland and was amazing...as always, but the sound quality was great, only matched when we saw him in the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
